(Gone in 60 Seconds 2000)
“Eleanor revs her engine again!”
“Cars are often featured but never one that the lead was the car”…Lee Iacocca
(25th Anniversary “Gone in 60 Seconds” DVD interview with Denice)
“Eleanor” is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive Star billing in a movie… She will miss the late, great H.B. ‘Toby’ Halicki that put her through her paces and of course she always loves working with the Racing Icons like Parnelli Jones and J.C. Agajanian in the original Gone in 60 Seconds. She reeves her engine, looking into the future… knowing her and the Gone in 60 Seconds legacy lives on…
Eleanor is so excited that Denice Halicki and Jerry Bruckheimer teamed her up with Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Giovanni Ribisi and Robert Duvall and all her hot little car friends. When Eleanor heard that Dominic Sena was going to direct her, she did a couple 360’ spins in joy… because Dominic worked with Toby Halicki on “The Junkman” (Halicki’s 2nd car action film). “Eleanor” reprises her roll as the rocket-slamming Fastback Mustang that can’t be tamed. She knows how to turn up the heat… with a new tank of gasoline and her belly full of high-stroke oil and new Goodyear™ shoes, Eleanor will spin and shake you in her hot car chase scene that will leave you breathless! You can’t catch her… because she is Gone in 60 Seconds!
“Eleanor” proves that she is the Star… she gets her motor running in Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) released on June 9th 2000.
Once again you can catch the fever of “Eleanor” in the release of Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) on DVD & VHS December 5th, 2000. “A Wild Ride”… David Sheehan, CBS-TV
